"You've got hit music from the Curtis album which is my last album," Fif said in a past interview about the game. "That's music from Justin Timberlake, Robin Thicke, Mary J. Blige, me and Akon, me and Dr. Dre, me and Eminem. Hit music from the last five years, it's optional for them to play. There's 40 tracks on there and 19 of them are brand new that they can hear."
